    Now it is obvious Sarah Palin quit her job because she knew the investigation into her corrupt tenure as Alaskan Governor was going to be exposed.
    Subpoenaed e-mails confirm that Todd Palin received unauthorized background checks on private individuals, was involved in a state judicial appointment, added his approval or disapproval to state board appointments through his wife's influence, passed confidential state information back and forth from his oilcompany to the state attorney's office, use of the private jet,constituents complaints, budget planning, oil shale leasing, vetoes on legislation, "strategy for responding to media allegations", state government raises, hiring and cuts, per diem payments to "Governor" Sarah Palin, oil and gas production, staffing at the mansion, "strategy for responding to the pregnancy issue with daughter", monitored and got invlved in state union employee contracts and many other issues that he should not have had any involvement whatsoever. These undisputed documents were released today.
    Told you so.
    Sarah Palin. What a friggin joke.

    Not that I love Sarah, but do you have any proof to back up your claims?

    You mean the first dude helped his spouse run the state? Kinda like Hillary helped Bill run the country? Did you have issues with this type of thing during the Clinton administration?

    Personally, I did then, and I do now. As far as counciling, that's what spouses usually do, so in that area, I have no problem at all.

    Well I suppose it is better than having astrologers run our president.

    And 8 year old first children offering their views to Daddy President as it pertains to nuclear proliferation.

    This is a non story unless it is proven that there were actual corrupt doings involved.
    If there were, she should be held accountable. If not, let it go.

    Palin e-mails reveal a powerful ?first dude? - Politics- msnbc.com

    Nearly 3,000 pages of e-mails that Todd Palin exchanged with state officials, which were released to msnbc.com and NBC News by the state of Alaska under its public records law, draw a picture of a Palin administration where the governor's husband got involved in a judicial appointment, monitored contract negotiations with public employee unions, received background checks on a corporate CEO, added his approval or disapproval to state board appointments and passed financial information marked "confidential" from his oil company employer to a state attorney.

    The still-secret e-mails between Todd Palin and senior officials reach into countless areas of state government and politics: potential board appointees, constituent complaints, use of the state jet, oil and gas production, marine regulation, gas pipeline bids, postsecondary education, wildfires, native Alaskan issues, the state effort to save the Matanuska Maid dairy, budget planning, potential budget vetoes, oil shale leasing, "strategy for responding to media allegations," staffing at the mansion, pier diem payments to the governor for travel, "strategy for responding to questions about pregnancy," potential cuts to the governor's staff, "confidentiality issues," Bureau of Land Management land transfers and trespass issues and requests to the U.S. transportation secretary.

    So, by rightwing logic, Todd Palin is more qualified to be president than Obama OR Sarah.
